General Management
The purpose of the general management major is to enable a student to choose a variety of management courses with the greatest flexibility (keeping in mind that core course requirements are the same for all majors). Substantial numbers of employers are looking for broadly educated students at the Bachelor’s degree level, and many students are not ready to specialize early in their careers.

General management majors still take courses in accounting, information systems, finance, organizational behavior, marketing, operations management, and business policy. Students who intend to continue in a more specialized graduate school program may want to consider this option.

Courses in this program are also available in an accelerated 8-week format in Macomb County at the OU Anton/Frankel Center in Mount Clemens.
